Washington Wizards all-star point guard John Wall is expected to miss 6-8 weeks due to a knee procedure, according to Washington Post's Candace Buckner.
On Tuesday, the National Basketball Association announced that Detroit Pistons big man Andre Drummond would replace Wall. Mix that with his flex on DeMarcus Cousins a few weeks ago, and it's clear the young Celtics star is showing the rest of the National Basketball Association that he's arrived.
Brown now is Boston's second-leading scorer behind Kyrie Irving at 14.1 points per game - ahead of Rookie of the Year candidate Jayson Tatum and All-Star Al Horford - so the Pistons big man might be a little off base there.
Andre Drummond has had a pretty good 24 hours. Sixers center Joel Embiid was voted in as a starter.More news: Locals React to President Trump's First State of the Union Address

Right after the news was announced, both Simmons and Brown sent out some cryptic tweets.
But hey, who knows, maybe Simmons and Brown were simply watching entertaining TV shows or playing video games, and that's what they were reacting to around the exact moment that the Drummond announcement happened.
Consider the rarity of Simmons' season: Only one rookie in National Basketball Association history has averaged at least 16 points, 7.5 rebounds, 7.0 assists and 1.5 steals per game.
His non-selection means he's set to miss the opportunity to join National Basketball Association legends Michael Jordan, Shaquille O'Neal, Patrick Ewing and David Robinson in becoming an All-Star in his rookie season. Drummond will be a reserve on Team LeBron, which has a loaded starting lineup: James, Kevin Durant, Anthony Davis, Kyrie Irving and the injured DeMarcus Cousins.
